Mt Scio Radio Antenna
Radio towers are usually quite boring but you can usually get a good view
of the surrounding areas from area.
This was the first trek that i've made alone. After taking wrong turns on
paths through the woods on the way up the hill, i found the light poll path
that i thought led up to the tower. It turns out that it ends at the MUN
biological labratory, which i mometarily contimplated trying to get into one
of the old wooden barns that appear to be used just for storage but there were
cars in the parking lots. Behind one of the buildings at the back of the area
i found, to my suprise, a well maintained path that leads right to the tower.
I assume the trail is part of the series of paths that go through Pippy Park.
The tower consists of two cement block sheds on either side of the actual
antenna. The door to the left shed was almost pryed open. Due to the high
risk of electrocution i decided to leave it alone. From the top of this hill
you can pretty much see most of the city.
